A$AP Rocky is trying to redeem himself.
A$AP Rocky told a Swedish court Thursday he was “scared” and desperately tried to avoid a fight last month in the capital of Stockholm.
Rocky is standing trial for allegedly beating 19-year-old Mustafa Jafari in Sweden.
Rocky testified for the first time on the second day of the proceedings in Stockholm District Court.
He said that Jafari and his friend refused to leave his entourage alone. He ended off with saying that he believed the two were “under the influence of some kind of drug.”
Meanwhile, the rapper said his crew was approached as he was trying to download an app to use an electric scooter.
“Things got a little weird. We thought that the behavior of these guys was strange, it got a bit scary,” Rocky, wearing an all-green inmate’s outfit, testified in the packed court, according to CNN.
Rocky continued: “After a while, my security guard started pushing him away, begging him to leave, go from there.”
“After a while, my security guard started pushing him away, begging him to leave,” Rocky said.
A$AP Rocky said he and his crew just wanted to “de-escalate” the situation.
“Me and my crew told them that, ‘Listen, don’t go where we are going, go the other way, we don’t want any trouble,’” he said.
“I assumed that these guys were under the influence of some kind of drug,” he said.
“Me and the crew start to tell them, ‘listen go the other way, go that way, we don’t want no problems. We don’t want no beef,’” Rocky testified, according to audio published by TMZ.
“At this point we are really scared. I saw my security guard being cut, bleeding. We didn’t know what to expect with these strangers — I’m not from Sweden, so it was really scary,” the rapper testified, according to CNN.
Rocky has been held by police since July 3. As a result, he faces up to two years in prison if convicted.
Above all, free Rocky Sweden!
